“While searching for healthier recipe alternatives on the 'net, I ran across this one on the Care2 website @ http://www.care2.com/greenliving/basil-lime-pumpkin-seed-pesto-recipe.html Adapted from Tassajara Cookbook, by Karla Oliveira (Gibbs Smith Publisher, 2007). This terrific recipe highlights basil’s fresh flavor with rich, nutty pumpkin seeds and zingy lime—a nice change of pace! Basil, Lime and Pumpkin Seed Pesto is packed with nutrition and fiber, and is so complete it doesn’t even require the tried and true Parmesan cheese!”
